Spoke to Nathan last night about the wind that was suppose to blow today giving him his options of fishing today or rescheduling to another day. He said the other 2 guys that were going to go backed out, that it was his birthday and he wanted to catch fish on his birthday. I thought I could oblige him, at least for the first part of the day, so we went. We met at o dark thirty, went out in the fog by GPS, set out my spread of boards, told him to throw some excess baits I had in the lake and before he knew what happened [Thirty minutes] we had 8 Stripers in the cooler and had been throwing others back. It was so early still we could not see the bank in most places due to the fog. At 7:30 we decided that since it was his birthday and him being 28 today we would try to catch 28 Stripers this morning. We ended up getting blown off the water after boating 26 Stripers, 2 shy of our goal. We both had a great morning, Nathan is a very good fisherman, he listened well and understood what it would take for us to catch the fish we did today in the windy conditions just by ourselves. He probably won't forget his 28th birthday. Pictured are the stringer of keepers from early this morning and a couple of other fish we caught later. Eighteen Stripers were returned to the lake to fight another day.

Wow, I'll be 46 on Wednesday, I wonder if I can catch 44 fish?

I doubt it, a cold front is blowing through on Wednesday. Your pontoon will be like a kite out on the lake.
Happy Birthday!
